“I must have put a decimal point in the wrong place or something. Shit! I always do that. I always mess up some mundane detail.”

David Herman as Michael Bolton in Office Space, 1999

“Ultimately, most Japanese Americans who volunteered for the war were formed into the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and were sent to Europe, where there would be no question of friendly fire. They saw their fiercest action in the Italian campaign. After the war, one tally revealed that of all Hawaiʻian service members killed in battle four in five were of Japanese ancestry, an imperishable monument to valor and patriotism. In fact, during the next run made for statehood in 1946 the Congressional report allowed that according to both Army and Navy intelligence not a single act of sabotage was committed by any resident of Hawaiʻi before, during, or after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The report went on to acknowledge ‘the important patriotic service rendered under the most critical conditions by all citizens of Hawaiʻi regardless of racial origin’. The U.S. Supreme Court reached a similar conclusion the same year when it finally ruled, rather after the fact, that wartime marshal law in the territory had been unconstitutional and was based on the mistaken premise that Hawaiʻian inhabitants are less entitled to constitutional protection than others.”
